Variety 1-A.

The 1849-D is numismatically significant as the first gold dollar from the newly-opened Dahlonega mint. It is far and away the most available issue of any denomination from this mint and it is the most affordable D mint coin in Uncirculated. In properly graded MS62 it is far from common, especially with choice surfaces and natural color.

This high end piece is well struck and it shows lovely natural medium yellow-gold color. The surfaces have a few light marks consistent with the grade; the most notable is a well-hidden scrape running horizontally above the ear. The overall eye appeal is excellent and this piece is closer to being a 63 than it is an “average” 62.

Only four PCGS MS62 1849-D gold dollars have sold at auction since March 2009. The most recent record was for $11,163 for Heritage 4/13: 5372.

This would be a perfect coin for the type collector seeking a single high grade Type One gold dollar from the Dahlonega mint.

CAC has approved four in this grade with three finer.
